The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall received French President Macron to celebrate the 80th anniversary of General de Gaulle’s ‘Appel’ at Clarence House on June 18th, their first Official Engagement in London after the outbreak of the Coronavirus. The Prince and Duchess also joined the President as he laid a wreath at the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Memorial and later at the Statue of General de Gaulle at Carlton Gardens. General de Gaulle’s ‘Appel’ to the French population was to resist the German occupation of France during WWII, and was given from the BBC Broadcasting House in London to France as the French government prepared to sign an armistice with the Nazi invaders.
